What do you think...?

Below are two graphs that look like they may have something in common. The first is from Whisperer's blog. We have posted it a few times here, and it shows how a mania unfolds in a graph.

I admit I have had trouble identifying where we were on the slope, but things may be a bit clearer now.

The second is the SFH average price for Vancouver. You judge.


  1. Sure looks like you can lay them on top if each other. Of course life is never that straight forward

  2. 5 waves up are: 1998-2000 (wave 1), 2000-2001 (wave 2, correction), 2001-2007, 2007-2009, 2009-2011.

    And we got a double top. The only question is how long and far this will go.

  3. Comparing to the bubble graph, it seems like the 'take off' phase occurs around 1988.

    What do you think? Will history peg the start of our bubble as 1988?

  4. I guess you can count it many ways
    But 1988 would make sense
    If we break Down another 4-5% this goose is getting cooked imvho

  5. The MSM is finally coming to the understanding of what a liability monster we have in the CMHC :

  6. I'll just leave this here:

    BTW, the Whigs aren't much better. My etymology book says it's Scottish for "horse thief".

    Leave it to the British to name their two major parties so appropriately. It's a pity we've rebranded them.

  7. One day away from 2013... Year of the "Fear".

  8. I really like your published post on real estate. It was very interesting and very impressive, I enjoyed the blog so much for showcasing such and eye-catching real estate. If you have time try to check Patrick Hospes and Julie Matthewson : RE/MAX House Of Real Estate : Home .

  9. sequestration is something it volition welfare from the separation.
    funeral arrangements are by the increasing accessibility of
    "no-fault" sequestration s for the genesis of youth adults in
    this written report.
